    Fans will pack into Citizens Park Sunday for the first time since the Parade of Champions.

    The Phillies have one thing to ask of fans going to the World Champions' season opener Sunday night -- get to Citizens Bank Park early.

    The game against the Atlanta Braves is scheduled to get under way at 8:05 p.m. But, there will be a slew of pregame festivities that the team doesn't want fans to miss.

    Pregame festivities including the raising of the World championship banner, a special first pitch and guest appearances will start at 7:15 p.m.

    No ticket -- no problem. The Opening Night festivities will be shown on Phillies.com.

    For those lucky ones with a ticket, the gates at CBP will open at 5:05 p.m.

    As always SEPTA will offer extra express service to the ballpark with express trains leaving Fern Rock every ten minutes from 6:48 p.m. until 7:38 p.m.
